Most thermal carafes with stainless or glass inner liners will hold foods
hot for 8 to 12 hours, and cold for 8 to 24 hours, depending on the model.
All-plastic thermal containers will hold a reasonable temperature for about
4 to 8 hours.
The pocket of air, or vacuum, between the glass or stainless liner and
the exterior surface is what keeps heat or cold from reaching the contents
of the container.
Pre-rinse the inside with hot water, before adding liquids, to keep hot
beverages hotter longer.
It will suffice to clean the liner with lukewarm water and baking soda.
Dishwasher use can damage the liner, introduce water into the air space, and
void all warranties.
Do not use dairy products, chemicals, alcohol, solid food or sticky
products into pump-type thermal containers.
Stainless steel liners are more durable than the traditional glass
liners, and easier to clean.
Special precautions with glass liners:
- Never drop or shock the thermal unit, to keep the glass liner from
- Never add ice to the glass liner;
- Never stir inside glass liner;
- Insert only liquids into glass liners.
If you are
using your thermal container for coffee, consider this filter cone holder,
which has a spout intended to fit over most thermal containers.
Use #6, or #4, coffee filters.
